Today’s odd story has a deep truth to teach us: "No situation is un-transfigurable." God brings hope, and beauty, and love to the most painful times. God invites us to be a people of transfiguration, to bring healing, and hope, and love to the most unlikely people, the most unlikely situations.
The words of Bishop Tutu: "no one and no situation, is 'untransfigurable.'" All of creation waits for us to lift the veil, to see the world as God sees the world. To see one another as God sees us, that is indeed a journey.
